The minister came up with the remark while replying to a query from reporters over the matter at the secretariat.
Replying to a question that how long it would take to debunk the murder mystery, the minister said "Our Rab force is working on it as per the High Court order. They're working with DNA samples. I think, they'll soon see a success."

Replying to a query about BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia's division in jail, he said, "We've taken all the necessary measures in jail considering Khaleda Zia's social status. We heard that a directive will come from court in this regard. We'll implement the court's directive after receiving it."
